A widespread Internet outage in North Korea that lasted about 9.5 hours appeared to be over late Tuesday after a preliminary look at some North Korean websites. However, it was unclear if all of the nation’s Internet connections were back up.
The blackout came less than a week after the FBI accused the country of being behind the hack that forced Sony Pictures to cancel the release of ‘The Interview.’ The Internet blackout began sometime Monday morning Eastern Time, a U.S. official confirmed to NBC News.
Two U.S. officials denied any U.S. involvement in the outage. It was not immediately clear what had caused the outage, which came after President Barack Obama promised that the United States would “respond proportionally” to what he said on Sunday was an “act of cyber vandalism.”
